|Features||Initial pre-clinical research suggests that this energy source does not cause serious adverse events such as stenosis narrowing of the vein or phrenic nerve damage, two complications that have been reported with heat-based ablation systems.|
|Description|| Arctic Circler uses the same cryoconsole and platform technology as Freezor to treat AF originating in the pulmonary veins. Arctic Circler is an ablation tool designed to challenge the traditional palliative-only treatments that rely on medication.
With its elegant design, the Arctic Circler catheter has the ability to create curvilinear lesions rapidly within the ostia (openings) of the four pulmonary veins located on the left side of the heart. The catheter's curvilinear ablation segment expands to fit the variable geometry of each patient's pulmonary vein ostia. This "customized fitting" feature is expected to reduce the number of lesions, thereby reducing the length of the procedure.
